Alderweireld Leaves Tottenham For Al-Duhail In Qatar

Belgium defender Toby Alderweireld has completed a transfer from Tottenham Hotspurs to Qatar side Al-Duhail.

Alderweireld has spent the last six years in North London, having joined from Atletico Madrid in the summer of 2015.

The 32-year-old has been instrumental in Tottenham’s rise into a major English and European force in the last few seasons, taking in 236 appearances in all competitions.

Al-Duhail will part with £13m for the former Ajax Amsterdam centre back’s services. He had two more years on his Tottenham contract.

Tottenham confirmed Alderweireld’s departure with a statement that read: "We have reached an agreement with Al-Duhail SC in Qatar for the transfer of Toby Alderweireld"

"We wish Toby the very best for the future."

Alderweireld has said his goodbyes in a social media post that reads: "Six years, two homes, a Champions League final and so many memories. You made me feel a part of your club the moment I walked out at White Hart Lane and roared us on, no matter what, into our new, special, stadium.

"Thank you first to the fans and then to my team-mates, and every incredible member of the Spurs staff, backroom and beyond.

"This club will always be in mine and my family's heart. Love Toby."
